April 25, 2007 — JSC Siajar, a trading organization in Saransk, Russia, has contracted SMS Meer to supply an AGW 200 E axial closed-die rolling machine. The machine will be used in forging operation planned in the Mordovia region, to produce near-net shaped blanks. The site of the new plant is still to be determined, though it's expected to have access to the Volga and Don Rivers.
Delivery it scheduled for July 2008.
The materials to be rolled will be, predominantly, general structural steels. One acid-resistant steel material – from which welding flanges are made — as well as aluminum alloys, also will be processed.
